Doctor Ferguson did a total knee replacement on me. Leading up to surgery all my questions were answered and I felt like he genuinely cared about my outcome! Before surgery he investigated my health status from top to bottom. I felt that I was in safe hands! I'm a person who is very aware of who is to operate on me and I want a good outcome! I had a great outcome. Six months out from surgery life is better than before surgery. I have no pain in leg/ knee and I'm outdoors with my dog everyday! I drove my car in three weeks! On pain medication for10 days only then just ice packs. Doctor Ferguson I could not have had a better professional outcome! Thank you for giving me my life style back. Thank you for praying with me before surgery complete calm came over me!

Dr. Ferguson gets my highest rating in all areas. he is a very friendly, compassionate, intelligent, and highly competent surgeon. My knee replacement experience was much easier than I ever anticipated, and other patients of his I met in Physical Therapy were in total agreement. He always answered every question I had, and took the time to make sure I understood every step of the surgical and rehabilitation process. I couldn't give any higher referral to any other physician.

Love my knee! But dishonest billing ...I tried for weeks to get someone to tell me what the cost of the surgery would be but no one seemed to know. So after all was said and done I was charged $22,000 for the actual joint that the hospital paid maybe $4,000 Anyone that stuck their head in my door charged me. And supply’s were outrageous... 2 stocking at Walmart $50...2 stocking Hillcrest $500 I have an idea - be honest in your deals. P.S. thanks for praying with us before surgery

Dr. Ferguson is awesome! He recently did a complete hip replacement for me and the experience was excellent every step of the way. His pain management after surgery was outstanding! I was able to stop the heavy pain meds in four days without being uncomfortable. Dr. Ferguson is a skilled surgeon, but he is also a person that offers to pray with you before surgery. For me it was very reassuring for him to ask for God's guiding hand during surgery.

Dr. Ferguson did an excellent job on my knee replacement surgery. After 41 years of not being able to completely straighten my leg, Dr. Ferguson was able to help with that as well as the knee replacement. When I had questions after I was home, his staff was excellent in answering any question I had. I am back at work now, and not having the knee pain I have had for the last 10 years is a great feeling. Dr. Ferguson is an excellent surgeon as well as a great guy. I highly recommend Dr. Ferguson.

When Dr. Ferguson moved from Midland to Waco, Texas, I followed him there for my knee replacement. He was helpful, informative, encouraging and personable at all of my pre and post surgery visits. In the hospital, he was calm, reassuring, and prayed for me before surgery. I think his skill in performing this surgery allowed him to do the best job I could’ve asked for when having a knee replacement. He has a helpful and friendly office staff. I’d definitely go back to him and recommend him.

Dr. Ferguson is a wonderful surgeon & has an amazing bedside manner. I was being prepped for TKR surgery and he came in right before to check on me . As my husband & daughter were fixing to leave he asked if we could pray together because he likes to pray before all his surgeries. We held hands & prayed...all my insecurities & nervousness was gone! I am 6 weeks out from surgery & doing great. I’m ready to schedule my other knee as soon as I’m fully recuperated!

Dr. Ferguson performed my knee replacement surgery. I was very nervous about the procedure. I am 60 years old and have never had a major surgery. Dr. Ferguson was very informative, patient and kind. I am in rehab now and getting better everyday. I would highly recommend Dr. Ferguson to anyone who is contemplating knee surgery. He is the best! I’m planning on letting him do my other knee replacement in the next few months!

Dr. Ferguson is great. He is not only knowledgeable and expert in his field, but he treated me like a person. he is both professional and very caring. I especially liked that he prayed with me before the surgery. I had knee replacement surgery 7 weeks ago. Physical therapy took less than 5 weeks. very little pain throughout the whole process. I am already walking over a mile a day with no pain. Before the surgery I could not walk a block without severe pain. If you need a new knee, he is great.
